Happy Halloween! Just a quick post here about keeping an eye on your dog during Halloween. Most Halloween treats are not acceptable for dogs especially anything sugar free made with Xylitol and remember no chocolate.
There is an excellent interactive Chocolate Toxicity Chart showing based on the weight of your dog how much chocolate it can ingest before being a problem.
Check it out at National Geographic – Chocolate Toxicity Chart
Keep your dogs safe and Happy Halloween!!
